Learning disability

Developing a learning disabilities workforce with the education, skills, values, knowledge and behaviours required to effectively deliver and improve learning disability services.

Around 1.5 million people in the UK have a learning disability – a condition that affects the way they communicate and understand information.

Through our learning disability programme, we aim ensure that the learning disabilities workforce has the education, skills, values, knowledge and behaviours they need to effectively deliver and improve services, both now and in the future. Working with Skills for Health and Skills for Care we’re providing support and guidance to the transforming care partnerships - enabling the development and implementation of sustainable workforce plans to deliver new models of care.
